Preparation for the opening of the 2008 motocross season
MotoPR selected as agency of record for school and owner-racer Dan Jannette
Fenton, Mich. (February 12, 2008) – One of the most experienced and versatile professional motorcycle racers, Dan Jannette, is hosting his 919 Moto School at the new Fenton Indoor Motocross facility near Flint, Michigan. This is the prime time for motocross riders and other off-road motorcyclists to advance their skills in preparation for the opening of the 2008 season in the Snowbelt states.
The 919 Moto School is offered Monday evenings to minicycle riders for $25 per rider. Mondays at Fenton Indoor Motocross are mini-only nights. One-on-one and two rider coaching for big bike riders—from new amateur riders to pros—is available during the normal riding hours at the Fenton facility for $100 per person for solo and $80 a person for two riders. These classes are three to four hours. Space is limited for minicycle and big bike riders and rates do not include Fenton Indoor Motocross fees.
Jannette, known by many as Danno, brings his vast racing experience to 919 Moto School participants. His racing varies from the AMA National Motocross Championship, finishing fourth overall at Hangtown MX in 1991, to the AMA Supermoto Championship at one time riding for Travis Pastrana’s Team 199.com to the Red Bull Last Man Standing extreme off-road race.
“The 919 Moto School is a fun way to help up-and-coming riders learn some of the tricks that took me years of riding and racing to develop,“ said Jannette, owner of the 919 Moto School. “For 2008, I am excited to do a few AMA Supermoto races as well as tackle a new series for me, EnduroCross.”
Group schools, all female rider coaching, and supermoto coaching are also available.
